Speaking of Chengdu, there are many foods, low prices, and a good climate. The city has developed rapidly in recent years. If it ’s not because of frequent earthquakes, I really want to settle down. This article introduces my first visit to Chengdu. , Some must-visit spots and food that even locals love.
Jinli is an antique commercial street and one of the most popular attractions in Chengdu.
There are many shops with characteristics of the Three Kingdoms, operating tea houses, inns, bars, theaters, flavor snacks, crafts, souvenirs, etc. I personally feel the snacks in the scenic area, just taste it, not particularly authentic.
Many folk artisans can also see paper-cutting, shadow puppets, clay figurines, sugar painting, egg carving art, etc.

Kuanzhai Alley is one of the most popular pedestrian streets in Chengdu like Jinli. What’s different is that this side is different from Jinli’s antique style, here The buildings are in the style of the late Ming and early Qing Dynasty, and there are also early Western Western-style, some will be more modern literary experience richer, compared to two places I like it here.
The wide and narrow alleys are composed of three alleys, wide alleys, narrow alleys, and well alleys. There are a variety of shops here, as well as shops that gather snacks, tea houses, Sichuan opera halls, Szechuan cuisine restaurant, Shu embroidery, art gallery, and various literary and fashion shops are arranged along the street, and it is very comfortable and comfortable to take a casual walk.
” Bronze man”on the street, you can spend a group photo.
There are shops on both sides where you can watch Sichuan opera changing faces, you can watch while drinking tea.
There is also a shop selling pandas around Kuanzhai Alley. It is worth a visit. Ladies and sisters can buy a panda headband to wear on their heads. Oh.

锦Next to it is the Wuhou Ancestral Hall, which just came here after visiting Jinli. It is the most prestigious memorial site for the heroes of Zhuge Liang, Liu Bei and Shu Han. It is also the world ’s most influential Three Kingdoms Museum.
Wuhou Temple contains the famous battles of the Three Kingdoms period, the comparison of the population and land of the military forces of the Three Kingdoms of Wei, Shu, Wu and the Three Kingdoms, the list of ministers of culture and military of the Three Kingdoms, and so on.
One of the more attractive is the red wall clip of the net red spot. The picture on the ticket of Wuhou Temple is here. The sunlight passes through the bamboo forest and leaves on the ground. The colorful shadows really have a different mood.

Heming Tea House
Going to the People’s Park to drink tea is one of the essential experiences in Chengdu. You can walk through the wide and narrow alleys. There are many people throughout the day. I do n’t know why Chengdu people are so leisurely. There are locals gathering and chatting. In addition to the elderly, there are also young people, and there is also a person who looks away.
Everyone said that the best place to experience the slow life of Chengdu Bashi is to come to the People’s Park and ask for tea in a quiet way. Find a place near the lake. What kind of tea do you want? If you do n’t have to drink a cup of tea, I suggest you get the cheapest one, because it does n’t taste very good. The main thing to drink is the atmosphere. You can sit all the time. Put the pot next to it and just add water yourself.
There are a lot of ears in People ’s Park. For me, a persecuted delusion, people in the park come and go and do n’t dare to try to ears It is said to be very cool.

Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Base
Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Base is At present, the world has the largest number of pandas, and many of the net red pandas on the videos live here, so when you come to Chengdu, you must see the cute pandas.
The panda base needs to go earlier, and the panda may fall asleep late, so I hurried to the panda base without having time to eat breakfast.
It was summer when I went. Due to the hot weather, the baby pandas moved into the room, and they could visit each hall in the order on the map.
There is a panda theater where the door just came in. Some documentaries and videos about pandas are shown for free. The pandas inside are all innocent. In fact, they are not so innocent. Two pandas have been fighting, and many pandas are lying on the ground lazily carrying bamboo.
Some smaller dumplings will be more cute, like baby pandas who are huddled together or laid flat on their stomachs.
There will be newly born panda cubs in the moon delivery room. You have to wait in line to watch this.
There are also red pandas in the park, which are stocked outdoors. They do n’t look up during the whole process, and finally take photos while they are finished eating. Took a frontal shot. It should be noted that red pandas and baby raccoons are not an animal. Although they look similar, they are not just noodles.
After all, it is the place where the national treasures live. The environment in the park is green and ecological, the flowers and plants are particularly beautiful, and there are landscapes such as Swan Lake. The pictures are amazing.
tips: There are battery cars in the scenic area, one way is 10 yuan, because there is no need to sit at a scenic spot when traveling After the return trip, walk around when you can take the cable car.
There are not many places to eat in the park. You can bring your own snacks or bento.
How to get there: First go to the zoo bus station. You can reach Panda Base here either 198a or 198. Or Kuanzhai Alley, Jinli and other popular attractions have direct access to the panda base, which is very convenient. The panda base is still far from the urban area. It is recommended to plan the time.

Anlan cable bridge, when standing on the cable bridge, facing the direction in which the river flows, there is an illusion that it is not on the bridge, but rather On the boat, there is an illusion that the bridge is moving backwards, which is amazing. When there are many people, the bridge will shake when walking, and you must take your cell phone or something.
Plan the route according to the distribution of attractions on the map, walk across the bridge, walk a little higher, and look back at the scenery in the distance I thought of the ridges and ridges in the poem. The mountains in the vicinity are emerald green, and the colors are lighter as the distance goes. The beautiful ink painting looks beautiful and I don’t see enough.
When I was looking for the Li Bing Museum on the map, I took a lot of detours and climbed a lot of mountains. As a result, I went to the toll office of Qin Yanlou and was told Li Bing The museum has been destroyed during the Wenchuan earthquake. If you go upstairs, you need to buy another ticket. If you have enough time and physical strength, you can go up and see the panoramic view of Dujiangyan. It is said that it is good.

1. Leshan Xianzhiwei bowl chicken
This Leshan Xianzhi bowl chicken was amazing when I went in 2016, too One of the best and most memorable foods I have eaten in Chengdu. Even if it is a transit in Chengdu, as long as I have enough time to run back and forth, I will deliberately go back and forth for two hours to eat.
Near Du Fu’s Thatched Cottage, a ten-year-old store, many locals also eat here, and the price is very affordable. The sign is 5 hairs for two people. Those who are full will be fifty or sixty yuan.
In addition to the bowl of chicken, every time you go, you will also have chicken soup and hot rice! The chicken soup rice is extremely delicious, just take a bite of the bowl of chicken, and then have a bowl of ice powder after eating, perfect!

It was so delicious that I couldn’t afford to take pictures. I found two pictures online.

Hmm .. I have started thinking about going to Chengdu after the epidemic is over. I want to go wherever I am now, which is really difficult. Chengdu is really much more attractive in terms of food than scenery or attractions. After all, many beautiful sights of Sichuan are located in various parts of the province. Chengdu is more suitable for shopping and eating. Next time you have the opportunity to go to Leshan, it is said that Leshan The food is more authentic!
